Hi! We hope you are enjoying your chai/kippah box!
If you’ve never used the word “L’chaim” before, try it the next time you want to make a toast. Maybe you can clink your chai shaped cookies in a toast!
Below is a link to one of the most famous uses of “L'chaim” from the movie Fiddler on the Roof.
And while we are talking about life, here is a link to listen to the song "Tree of Life." This one makes me want to go to camp!
Did you decide to put a chai on your kippah? Have you ever worn one before?
Here is a cool video to introduce you to the idea of wearing a kippah. Notice all of the people in the video wearing kippot (plural of kippah) are men, but now some women wear them too!
Here is a second kippah video that talks about what the kippah traditions are for all the different Jewish movements and includes women wearing them.
Haven't had enough yet about Yarmulkes? One more video just for fun. It's a Yarmulke Rap called "Yo Yo Yarmulke"!! :)
After you make one kippah, you may realize you want to make a whole bunch! If you do, or if you already have lots of kippot, here is an art project idea for you... Recycle a shoe box or tissue box by decorating it and making it a kippah holder! Maybe your synagogue could use one!
Ready to make those chai shaped sugar cookies? Here is the recipe:
